your wedding

How exciting that you have chosen to take the next steps in your quest for wedding flowers and decor! To provide the best experience for our clients and paramount service, we take only a select number of weddings per year. It is recommended that you contact us six to 12 months in advance of your wedding. For larger weddings, weddings that require travel and holiday weddings, please inquire at least nine to 12 months in advance.

our approach

Admittedly, we have driven hours from our studio to get farm fresh flowers. Crazy, right? Just as well, we have local farms that bring flowers fresh from their farm to our studio. They are as crazy and passionate as we are about bringing you the best the season has to offer. And we love them for that. Our local wholesalers bring us flowers grown nationally and internationally. While not every flower is grown locally, our wholesalers bring great knowledge to us. And hey, it helps keep our neighbors, our fellow Pittsburghers in a job, we see no harm in that either.

We are option motivated, creative oriented in our approach to flowers. Are there cost effective alternatives to baby’s breath? You bet your sweet aspidistra there is! It is also our belief that you don’t have to wear white and Mom doesn’t have to wear a corsage. We encourage Grandmothers as Flower Girls and Grooms to wear navy suits with brown shoes. You will find in us your own personal, creative cheerleaders. Minus the splits and back flips.

We just cannot take every wedding that comes our way. But hey, we are not snobs. We just want to do the very best for every client. In order to do that, we have to keep our schedule limited (please don’t beat us up if we can’t do your wedding, it is just as agonizing for us that we can’t take on every terrific client that contacts us). During the busiest wedding months of May through October, we have to invoke a minimum spend of $3,500 plus sales tax and delivery. We know that minimums are a curse word. It’s an ugly, but necessary word in this industry. The market demands beauty and attention; minimums supply us the means to do so. Don’t fret though. Seriously. Paulette has a soft spot for smaller events. Therefore, we have a la carte options and other fairy godmother tricks up our sleeves. We have a magic wand and we aren’t afraid to use it.
